DISH Network ordered to pay $20.5M for violating telemarketing laws

A jury in a North Carolina court held DISH Network Corp. liable for more than 51,000 telemarketing calls made to people with telephone numbers on the National Do Not Call Registry and awarded $400 per violation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act, totaling $20.5 million, The Herald-Sun reported.

According to the report, the class-action lawsuit stemmed from a complaint filed in 2014 and has ballooned to 18,000 class members. The calls were placed by a now-defunct DISH dealer.

According to a company spokesperson, DISH disagrees with the jury's decision and is considering further legal action.
